Will a DELL Inspiron N5010 play sims 3?

  TrinaD78 13:43 21 Jan 2011

I was checking the specs on it to the game and most seemed okay but i couldnt find the graphics card(maybe its under a different name or something, I'm not that good with computer specs) I was just wondering if anyone can tell me whether or not this laptop can play sims 3?

Game Spec:

Also, if it is able to play the game, will it be able to play the expansion packs, just take more memory?

Any help is much appreciated (:

I don't see why that laptop shouldn't play Sims 3. It has decent enough specs to do so.

That Dell's integrated graphics (GPU) would concern me, unless you're happy to play on low(ish) settings.

If not, try to get one with a dedicated GPU. Post links of the dedicated GPU ones you find & I'll let you know if they will be OK or not.

A few to consider with dedicated GPUs:

HP G62-b17SA click here / HD 4250 / 15.6” (medium) / £445

Sony Vaio EE3E0E/WI click here / HD 4250 / 15.5” (medium) / £454

HP Pavilion DV3-4100sa click here / HD 5470 / 13.3" (small) / £492

HP G72-130sa click here / HD 5430 / 17.3" (large) / £516

If you'd prefer a Dell &/or would like to purchase from PCWorld, I can suggest one of those from PCW instead. G
